My Carrier 58dxc is making a loud noise

My carrier 58dxc is making a loud knocking noise and blowing out cold air. When I switch the thermostat to air the knocking stops and the unit works fine. It's only when I switch it to heat is when the knocking noise starts and the cold air comes out. Can anyone help.

If your turning on heat and the unit is knocking and blowing cold air, your compressor is having problems in heat mode, could be reversing valve. A tech is needed in your situation. Getting the prob fixed right away will save you dollars..

Hi, i just bought a second hand amcor air conditioner but it dosent send hot air, what can be the problem?


Air conditioners normally blow cold air, unless it has a built in heat pump. You should post the model with your questions.

I have a older Carrier heat pump, model 38YKC060. Does anyone know how cold it will continue to work at?


Heat pumps are of little or no value at temps around 40 degrees or below. And if you use the strips it will cost a small fortune if you have relatively high electric rates as most folks do.

We have royal red furnace to heat our home.The fan dose not stop.


Details.......does the furnace function normally otherwise? Might just be a stuck fan switch. Make sure the thermostat hasn't been set on Fan ON setting or summer air circ. on older furnaces.
Find the fan switch and tap it and see if fan quits. If it does,fan switch is bad.probably. Always make sure your air circ. filter(return air to furnace) is replaced every 3 mo. or so,too. don-ohio (:^)

Johnson Starley boiler main board fuse blowing


Chances are the fuse on the circuit board is for control circuit protection. Take note of the location of all the thermostat connections on the circuit board and remove them. Do this with the power OFF. Replace the fuse and re establish power. If the fuse did not blow, the problem is in the wiring to or from the thermostat. It could even have the insulation rubbed through and making contact with the side of the boiler or a mouse could have chewed through the insulation causing a short to a metal object.

Once the issue with the thermostat wiring is resolved, reinstall the low voltage connections and you should be good to go.

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

My termost set to a/c, the fan auto, blow very well, but when I switch to heat and the fan auto, doesn't work, but if I put fan on work why?


the thermostat says to call for heat buildup in the work if its not cold enough the thermostat won't call for heat and I won't go on but when it gets cold and the thermostat set to the temperature you want or hire someone that doesn't cycle

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed
